    As handsome as that guitar is, I'll bet its sound eclipses its looks. Tele/T-bird, what a wonderful idea.

    Wow! What a stunner. The sunburst on the back of the neck and back is amazing.
    Looks like art.

    I love natural wood Teles. That guitar is a looker. The pickups are truly cool!

    It has a bite and growl to it. Smoother than single coils, more harmonics than a std humbucker.
